Cynicism is not intelligence.
Cynicism is the coward’s way of dealing with life. It provides easy scapegoats when things go wrong. It provides an excuse not to care about people or entities who are imperfect.
It doesn’t help the cynic’s loved ones. It doesn’t help the cynic’s country. It doesn’t serve God, no matter how one chooses to worship.
It does serve sensationalist news media and power-hungry political parties.
Which makes cynics little more than the ultimate suckers.
